I'm looking for a 17 inch or 18 inch 40 spoke rear rim, so I can lace the hub I have in there. Anything considered.
Cheers cheers

I wish. I have a spare 16 but I've been threatening to put that on the front of my Twincam Springer. I want a skinny 18 on the back of the rigid Evo. Haven't seen anyone with an 18" for a while.

That looks good. What would it be off? I don't remember an 18" rear mag but the fronts would have all been 19" so it must be a rear one.
